Knee Arthroscopy: A Closer Look

 

In a knee arthroscopy, your surgeon will typically make 2-3 small incisions (poke holes) around the knee. He or she then inserts a small camera and miniature instruments through the incisions. This allows your doctor to assess the structures in the knee.

If your orthopedic surgeon has determined that you would benefit from knee surgery it is important to be aware of typical pre-operative and post-operative instructions. Please speak with your surgeon’s nurse specifically if you have any questions regarding these instructions.
